Forum: etree Subject: Best way(s) to abuse my college's bandwith and help the IA

With the addition of DMB 12-21-02, it appears that the IA is facing more than it can handle. While P2P systems will certainly help a lot, it might take more than that to keep the IA going with the speeds we have seen in the previous months. That being said, I'm wondering how best to abuse my free bandwith at college to help out the IA. I could mirror some shows from the archive, but I don't have the funds to come up with 500GB of HD space. Also, my university "limits" my outgoing bandwith to 1 megabit/sec -- but I can use unlimited Internet2 bandwith. Is there some way we can use this to our advantage -- I'd be happy to try to lessen the load on the servers if there were some way that I could mirror some of the more popular shows on my server at school -- and just allow logins from people with Internet2 access...

any thoughts???

P.S. Now that finals are over, I can finally get back to working on the FAQs...if there is anything you would like to see included in the FAQs, please e-mail me -- mfh2014 AT columbia DOT edu

Wow, you are dead on! Jon aizen, brad tofel, and I are working on a distrubuted caching system that is specifically designed to leverage well connected computers that serve particular user bases (like I2, specific universities, specific isp's etc).

we would love a test site. Jon goes back to school on Jan 20th, so we hope to have something wobbling by then, but it will really be this summer most likely to get it deployed.

this will compliment the efforts of onionnetworks, bittorrent, and dsi.

Onward to large-file friendly Internet!
